"And all flesh shall see the salvation of God."

John the Baptist speaks this Sunday. The coming of the promised Messiah is the most fundamental meaning of Advent. His coming is the fulfillment of God’s plan to save mankind. Jesus the Messiah indeed came, and he will return to bring redemption to a definitive fulfillment. Our Discussion Questions will guide your Sunday Bible Study with family, friends and church groups.

The theme of all the readings for this Sunday, Dec. 9, 2012, is salvation. Luke’s gospel (Luke 3:1-6) and the first two readings (Baruch 5:1-9 and Philippians 1:4-6, 8-11) speak about it in different ways. Salvation is God’s free gift. He saves us out of His love and from him alone can our salvation come. The Responsorial Psalm describes it very well with this phrase: “The Lord has done great things for us; we are filled with joy.”
